It’s not my fault! I recently reported that the US’ Public Broadcasting System would air the London cast performance of the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical “Oklahoma!” tonight at 8 PM Eastern on Washington, DC’s PBS station, WETA. The information came directly from the PBS “Great Performaces” Web site. In fact, that information is still there. However, when I fired up the VCR and settled myself before the TV set in anticipation of seeing the wondrous Hugh Jackman and hearing him sing the opening lines of the show a cappella: “There’s a bright golden haze on the meadow …,” my hopes were dashed. A promo came on informing viewers that the program will air Sunday night at 9 PM.
Dammit. I have to wait four more days.
Apologies to all who are, like me, waiting in vain. Again, it’s not my fault. But enjoy the view of Hugh as cowboy Curly in the meantime.
